This book is well written & very informative. The author has painted a picture for us of what it was like as a relative of a patient, patient, doctor, or staff at this institution. I particularly enjoyed the actual past patient histories & stories he included about their lives. The information about how the actual structure of 999 Queen Street W. changed over the years was also most interesting.

This book was very well done. It's hard to believe these days what the patients went through. People who should never have been put in there and yet it seemed to have worked for some. The conditions that they lived in wouldn't be tolerated today. I did go on the tour of the grounds a couple of years ago - the author conducted the tour and really brought it home to everyone about how things were.

This is a fasinating and myth-busting book. The author has succeeded in giving a voice to all those silenced for so many years.
